It’s a good song…although I find it repetitive which is probably why it needed her. Because did she ever take the Church to another level, holy F-CK, Annie Lennox. Holy F-CK. Who could possibly follow that? Is that why I’m listening to No More I Love Yous on repeat this morning? And then there was Prince. Full Story

After all these years, do you feel differently now about what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift at the VMAs? “Imma let you finish”? It’s still a dick move, yes. But would you change Gossip History and remove it from the Gossip Books? I’m not even sure Taylor would want that expunged from the archives. Full Story

Vulture asked a very important question on Twitter last night: Who has more friends, Taylor or Gwyneth? It’s been a year now, right? Since I first started calling Taylor Swift the “Friend Collector”? She’s also, like, the official mascot of music award shows now too. Full Story

To me, Madonna looked stiff last night at the Grammys. There was no fluidity in her movements. My friend Iain, the most ardent Madonna fan I know, even he called her performance “cautious”, wishing she would just let go. That’s about as critical as it gets from Iain on Madonna. So if even he’s calling it “cautious”, it was cautious. Full Story

I mean, I’m always attracted to Stephen Colbert… But right now, with his glasses off, and his hair longer like that, and you can see his nose and his cheekbones, so defined… Oh My God. Is there even a little Rob Lowe in his face? THERE IS TOTALLY ROB LOWE IN HIS FACE! And while that won’t break the internet, it is indeed a new discovery. Full Story

Sometimes when I’m in mixed company and people ask what I do, I get some flack for being an entertainment writer. Usually it’s from men, and it’s always a bit of a condescending take: entertainment news is shallow, it’s silly to like gossip, tabloids are for dumb people, it’s dangerous to worship at the feet of celebrities etc. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow was in Mexico a couple of weeks ago for a minibreak. I posted some of her beach shots at the time. Click here to see. Now she’s showing us some of her own pictures on GOOP in a scrapbook clearly intended to promote the resort where they were staying. Full Story
